Wing Chun Applied to ‘Day-to-Day’ Living
While some choose to associate martial arts with violence; there are many deeper perspectives imbedded in them for those willing to look beyond surface level applications.
Some of the subtle perspectives which I have gained through practice include an increased sense of:
Sensitivity to environmental changes and the mannerisms of others
Acceptance of situations, circumstance, and events
Ensure you have proper knowledge and understanding of any opposition
Quickly find and hold the 'center'
Acquire and sustain advantageous positioning
Taking the first step
Rapidly adjust commitment to positions, perceptions, and actions during the moment of change
Avoid force-on-force confrontations when possible
Sometimes one may not be able to avoid a “head on collision;” however, one must realize that being in a “head on collision” is not the purpose of starting your car in the morning.
